What is a Facial Plastic Surgeon?
A facial plastic surgeon is a physician who has completed training in all aspects of Otolaryngology and further fellowship training specifically in facial plastic surgery. The distinction between a plastic surgeon and facial plastic surgeon is marked by board-certification from the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS). Facial plastic surgeons combine a nuanced understanding of aesthetic beauty with a comprehensive knowledge of facial anatomy and physiology to improve, reconstruct, or repair structures of the head and neck. While commonly performing procedures designed to address signs of aging or create a more harmonious balance between the facial features, those specializing in facial plastic surgery also work to remove facial cancers and reconstruct the resulting defects following their removal, reconstruct the face after trauma or injury, and achieve a range of other cosmetic and functional goals.
